Police: Armed Parolee Shot By Officers In Albuquerque

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An Albuquerque police officer shot a parolee who used his car to ram police vehicles in a bid to evade arrest and wielded a rifle while trying to get a driver out of a nearby car in the city’s southwest, authorities said Friday.

Police Chief Harold Medina said the man who was shot was hospitalized and no officers were injured in the Friday incident near Broadway and Gibson boulevards.

The suspect was not immediately identified.

Medina said the man was sought on a parole violation and was a suspect in vehicle thefts and an Albuquerque homicide investigation.

A Multi-Agency Task Force was investigating.

The shooting was the third involving Albuquerque police in the past six days.
